Tews, thanks for the reply. Ran through it all and no infections were detected. Will see if it presents itself again and work on it further when I get time.
Have a GREAT day!

Hello Idahjo,

Sorry to hear you have malware on your computer.

Absolutely none of the scans found anything? I slightly find that hard to believe, because if you are experiencing pop-ups, it would be caused by malware. Can you try running all the scans again?

New trojan
Hi, there's this new trojan which I found on a website. Its filename is Bookmark.exe. Strange is that only 22/40 anti malware engines were able to detect it. Currently, I was trying Norton 360 beta 4 which has failed to detect it. :shock: So far, this trojan has changed my IE8 homepage. Not...
